This little piece of serenity is located on a small wooded mountain top. Totally private and secluded. New carpet, fully furnished, we have added a TV with a Blue Ray Player NO CABLE you can bring your own movies, you can enjoy the beautiful mountain music from Mt. Airy on the radio and go back in time. This is a simple cabin, just to come up relax and read on the deck and let the kids run and play. Back to basics. Small eat-in kitchen. Very cozy, romantic little place.
This cabin was purchased for a place to come and enjoy the mountain life and cool weather in summer time. It was perfect for a few years but my father has gotten older and sadly can not make the trip any longer. So my brother and I decided to rent the cabin to help with cost of taxes, insurance and maintenance. This cabin has lots of wonderful memories for us and we continue to stay when life permits us too. For our family it has always been a place to get away from electronics and just get back to the simple things of life. Walks, music, reading, what ever suits us at the time. Food always seemed to taste better up there on the balcony with the refreshing mountain air. We are always taking lots of deep breaths...

This property was unique because you are on a small mountain top surrounded by 7+ acres. Very secluded but just down the road is a very quaint little town with lots of history. Go to Grayson for more information on the beautiful area.
A cozy home away from home to relax and recharge your life.
We got to the property LATE and it was dark - bring a flashlight, and a map - no GPS :) Lots of winding roads to get there, but once we did, it was perfect! So quiet! We had a deer join us for breakfast out the kitchen window our first morning there. Everything was provided, and any problems or questions we had were quickly addressed by the owner. The kids survived just fine with no wi-fi. They found that they could play out on the deck and in the trees and have a great time. Perfect for anyone looking to get away from it all and just enjoy the peace and beauty of it all.
If you want peace and quiet. A time to relax and get away from the world..this is the place. Very nice cabin on top of a mountain, cabin was clean and had everything needed, but pick your food up in town before you get there, because once there you don't want to leave.
Pros: Inexpensive. The cabin has nice sized rooms.. nice bedroom on main floor and ginormous bedroom upstairs with it's own deck. Wake up to view out the sliding glass door of the forest. Very secluded, peaceful and quiet in a beautiful wooded property.. NOT one of those where you are smashed up against a dozen other cabins with a beautiful view nothing but a dozen other cabins! Fairly close to a big river with several good walking/biking trails and kayak/boat put-ins. River tends to be very shallow and rocky though. Nice little towns nearby .. Independence very quaint. Pet friendly. Friendly people in the area at local stores, etc. Feel very safe and relaxed. Wonderful washer/dryer. Microwave and all appliances worked very well. Good hot water. Plenty of parking for 3, maybe 4 vehicles.
Cons: Most (all?) windows/doors don't have screens so letting nature sounds and fresh air/breezes in and bugs out is rather difficult. Need to provide maps because most cellphones did not work for navigation once we turned off the interstate and it was quite a long tangled route from the interstate to the cabin.. and back out again. Maps provided in the reservation process and also at the cabin would be tremendously helpful. The place charges a respectable cleaning fee but it was NOT clean when we arrived. Trash in all the trash/garbage cans, not all the beds were made, etc. Mattresses on main beds were not the optimal quality. Décor was rather random and outdated. Entire house smells strongly of mold but possibly just needs several days of airing out. Refrigerator exterior looked horrible. It worked well but exterior was corroded in many spots all over making it look filthy. Storm door is broken.
My grandfather built this cabin as a vacation home in the 80s when I just just a kid. We spent many summers here and I have many fond memories of spending time with my grandparents here! I have not been to this house in many many years since my grandparents sold it. I hope everyone who gets to stay here enjoys it as much as I did as a young boy !
We loved the house and property. It was very relaxing and secluded. There was enough space for our two dogs and four adult. We enjoyed the evenings on the porch and balcony. The owners were always prompt with communication and willing to answer any questions we had. It was also very cool and comfortable, even in July. We look forward to returning in the future!
Me and my boyfriend and our 2 dogs recently stayed at thus cabin for nearly 2 weeks and we absolutely loved it! It was a perfect location for a base cabin for the many hikes we went on. Its very secluded and although the owner lives in florida he is very helpful and very easy to contact if you have any questions. We will definitly be back at thus cabin. Its the perfect place to get away from it all.
This is a totally private secluded small mountain top. Could be for a romantic week or a place where kids could run and play as my kids have done. Gray son county offers lots of music festivals, drag racing, jam sessions,pumpkin festivals,trails of all kinds riding horses, walking,biking,or auto., artisan trails featuring glass, porcelain, pottery,leather, the list goes on and on.
